The York Greeters team works in the city centre during the high tourist summer season to offer a helping hand for visitors, shoppers and residents alike. The team works at visitor hotspots throughout the city centre providing information, general directions, suggestions on attractions, and where to shop and eat. They also ensure visitors are aware of the offerings of businesses that exist outside of the city centre hotspots.
The York Greeters are very visible in burgundy attire with the slogan ‘ask me a question’, encouraging visitors to approach with their queries. All greeters are familiar with the city centre and have experience of providing visitor information on York. The Greeters programme focuses on the BID’s aim to increase the welcoming presence in York City Centre for residents and visitors and support for businesses located throughout the BID area.
